Fabio, Adoptable Horse of the Month
Hailing from the West Virginia Horse Network in Elkview, W.Va., Fabio is a 20-year-old pony gelding who is broke to ride but on the green side. He has an adorable face and goofy ears, and loves people. He will even pass up grass and other horses to hang out with humans. He’s good for the vet and farrier and is an easy keeper who could stand to lose a couple of pounds. His ideal adopter will appreciate his outgoing and loving personality and prefer to train him in an English saddle if planning to finish out his under-saddle training.
